Can I use powder detergent in this machine?

I know it says HE detergent but can I use powder or does it have to be liquid?
Asked by: Amberb
I would not advise it. I have a high-efficiency front loader and after using powder detergent in the washer it never has enough water to actually use the powder soap to work as efficient as a liquid. Powder soap seem to clog up the machine which makes for more soap stay in the machine and in the close.

4.2 cu. ft. High-Efficiency Front Load Washer in White, ENERGY STAR is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 1463.
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great quality Washer, Heavy Duty concept. But this dryer wash was is not as good as top Load wash... Great quality Washer, Heavy Duty concept. But this dryer wash was is not as good as top Load washers which soak the dirt and grime out in submerged water, or maybe it's just this model that has the less water. I have seen a commercial laundry front load washers fully submerge clothes in water. Some deeper stains will remain because of the near dry wash, which may disappear in a Top Load washer but it still does a good job using a energy saver water amount where you really don't necessarily want an energy saving less water wash for heavily stained or soiled clothes. There are probably Front Load washers that adds more water to the wash and is better capable of removing heavy or deep stains on the market than the energy saver models. I longer want an energy saver washer, I want a regular one that submerges my clothes in a significant amount of water for better cleaning. But overall this washer does a good job at cleaning, but one washing clothes submerged in more water is better.

Bought the Samsung WF42H5000 model at Home Depot in May 2016, it broke November 2017. Out of the 1 year warranty period, but we called Samsung warranty center since some parts might be covered. the warranty center was a lot of red tape; they assigned us a repair center that was horrible (E-Fix), never showed up, never called us back, or when they did the message was so garbled we could not decipher who it was (caller Id help us figure it out). So we ended up hiring another local authorized repair shop to come out and diagnose the machine (Controller board), but it was like pulling teeth to get Samsung to issue the part. They would not send it to us directly, and had such a hard time reassigning the "work ticket) to Mr. Appliance. We survived the month and half with out a working maching, only because our old whirlpool washer was still working (16 years old and going strong). My take away from this is that Samsung SUCKS! they don't stand behind there appliances and their appliances don't last long.

I have had Maytags in the past with no need for repairs for many many years. I had this machine for two years when it stopped completing the wash cycle. It would fill, wash, spin, but never complete. I went out one evening for three hours, and it was still in an endless cycle. The problem developed on the very last day of the warranty. I called the help number. First they said it was the filter -- the filter was fine. Then they walked me through a recalibration. Also didn't solve the problem. Then I tried to contact Samsung-recommended repairmen. One place said they didn't cover Samsung anymore, and the other places were so far away (I'm in DC and the closest was in someplace like Baltimore) I gave up and called an independent repairman. $89 for the visit, because it's stacked with the dryer. Labor: $149. Part $195.75. Samsung washers are probably contributing to the mountainous trash heaps in the world.

Our wf42H5000awa2-01 washer began acting up just short of being 3 years old. I was told a service call would be 200.00 and I could tell our problem was due to tub bearing failure. The Machine was so loud you could not have a conversation in the next room at high speed ( it sounded like a jet taking off ) Trying to get parts for this machine is a nightmare, The thing is so poorly designed a small pot metal washer around the Flange Shaft is what I needed to repair the machine but of course they will not provide that part for repair. Instead they would have you replace the stainless steel spin drum that starts at 250.00 plus shipping . This is for a assembly that they refuse to sell parts for. I am looking for alternatives to seal the washer tub to prevent it from leaking. Samsung had to spend more money to design this thing poorly than if they built a modicum of quality into it. Not making the simple parts available to repair it is a obscenity. In no way should anyone buy one of these machines due to the lack of repair parts and 200.00 service call. I am very disappointed in Samsung. Based on what I have seen here I will never buy the Samsung brand in the future. ( our Maytag lasted for 20 years, the Samsung, not even 34 months. )

Then it started repeating the spin cycle and would often run for 4-10 hours on a single load. Doing some research on the web proved that this was a common problem and that Samsung would not back their product nor provide a solution for this issue. After identifying a couple of possible solutions it became clear that it would be a better move to replace this 1-1/2 year old washer with a different brand. I could hope that I guessed correctly and paid for either the $300 or the $250 suggested repair or end up doing both and find out neither worked. I had bought the unit on sale for $500, so really did not feel good about doubling the price in hopes of getting it working again. My previous Maytag worked for $25 years and I only replaced it to get a newer high efficiency model. In retrospect, that was not a good decision. It will be a long time before I purchase another Samsung product.

I also purchased the high-efficiency front load dryer with this washer about four and half years ago. I have had issues with the washer more than the dryer. Clothes come out smelling musty and still stained. Now both machines have stopped functioning properly; the washer is not working at all. Samsung is not at all helpful in determining the causes of these issues. They continue to go back to the fact that it is out of warranty. These were not cheap, bottom-of-the-line items and part of why I chose them was because I trusted the Samsung name. Had I known I should expect two items totaling close to $1600 would stop functioning after just a few years I would have gone with another brand, one more inclined to stand behind their products.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Beware of Malfunction. possible design flaw We purchased this washer in November and it worked well for two months. It stuck in the spin/rinse cycle and would not complete the wash. After many weeks, two repair calls and replacing a circuit board, it was determined that it was not repairable and the warranty would refund what we paid for it. That amount was $200 less that the current price, 3 months later. I convinced Samsung to do a swap as the machine was only 3 months old. They shipped a new machine from the Midwest through a big national delivery company, Manna. We live in central New York. Why didn't they just call the local company that delivers for Home Depot? Well, another weekend of many without a washer. The machine won't be delivered until next week and the company is not equipped to install the machine and take away the packing material and the old washer. Still working that out. Not a pleasant experience! Bottom line is that the repair company said this is the fourth similar problem they have found with this model and therefore it may be a design flaw.

Beware of the sub par "flange assembly" (spider bracket), which is made of pot metal and usually only lasts 2-7 years before corroding and breaking/falling apart. Repair is more than the cost of a new washer.
